Retrovision: Shakespears Sister- Stay

Twenty years ago Shakespears Sister had their biggest hit in the UK with their song "Stay". It is one of the longest running UK number ones in UK chart history (8 weeks), and the longest by an all-female group or duo. The video for the song was directed by Sophie Muller whose concept was inspired by the film 'Cat Women of the Moon'. The video featured Detroit and Fahey fighting over a comatose man. The video won Best Video at the 1993 Music Week Awards and Brit Awards. The epic promo was featured in the Top 100 Music Videos of all time by Channel 4. To prove its longevity, in early November 2010, "Stay" re-entered the charts in the UK, Ireland and the European Hot 100 Singles.
